McLennan Ross Wishes Karen Platten, Q.C. a Happy Retirement

After a long and distinguished career, MR’s Karen Platten, Q.C. is retiring.

Karen was regularly recognized by Best Lawyers as one of the top legal talents in Canada. With a practical and efficient approach, she has been a valuable advisor to clients in estate planning, trusts, estate administration, and dependency claims for more than 30 years.

Karen contributed to significant legal changes that have made a difference in the lives of people who previously endured institutionalized discrimination. Karen sat on the advisory committee to update the Matrimonial Property Act to the Family Property Act. Thanks to her, the Act now features important changes that bring adult-interdependent partnerships into the property division regime whereas before property division was exclusively a right for married couples. 

While she will be greatly missed, we wish Karen all the best in retirement!
